HOUSTON (ICIS)--Jacobs has won a contract to convert Shell’s Clyde refinery in Sydney, Australia, into a refined products import terminal, the US-based petrochemicals engineering firm said on Tuesday.

Shell announced in 2011 that it planned to convert the small refinery into a terminal as the unit was no longer competitive. The 79,000 bbl/day plant ended operations in September last year, according to information on Shell's website.

Jacobs said that its contract is for a basic design and engineering package to convert the refinery and an associated satellite terminal into a product import terminal.

Subject to subsequent approval, Jacobs is also expected to provide engineering, procurement and construction management services for the project, it said. Financial details were not disclosed.
